Goku: Midnight Eye

Mar 16, 2012



Story- Okay the story is pretty much this, Goku the main char, is a detective and people that he knows are commiting scuicide. He thinks that they are actually murders. He has an eye that can analyze things and makes him immune to the powers of the one who is making people commit scuicide. Apparantly it can also control technology but I don't really see much of that in this OVA So his lover Yoko, is fatally injured (or atleast put in a coma) due to the organization that the person who is making people commit scuicide is from(the leader used some bees that are attracted to human breathe)  So he wants get revenge on the organization and its leader. Oh and also he has a extendable metallic staff that shoots lightning. Sounds confusing? Thats because it is lol =P

Animation- idk I just love 80's style animation and character designs so this is mostly me being biased but I though the animation was great. The shading, lighting, colors the way the city looked and how they brought it to life. Just thought it was all great.

Sound- Umm... not the most amazing soundtrack ever but its not terrible, the OST fit the anime quite nicely and yeah Im a sucker for 80's music.


Characters- The characters of this anime consist of Goku the main char(he has a mullet and wears a blue tie and suit, and a blue leotard underneath), some random dude in a suit with a robtotic arm that gets killed at the start of the OVA, his partner and lover Yoko(or it might be Ryouko, I wasn't paying much attention, for most of the OVA she wears a red track suit and has black hair... kinda like that biker girl from Golden boy lol), a naked woman that hypnotizes you with peacock feather that grow from her ass, an naked android/cyborg woman who is partly a motorcycle and shoots lasers from her mouth (no seriously), a huge dude and the main bad guy... who also has a mullet. Theres no real development, but I gotta hand it to the original manga creator for coming up with somewhat orginial characters... I know goku is based off that Hindu myth and what not but the only thing that he takes from it is the staff and I mean an andorid bike woman that shoots lasers... never would have thought of that.

Overall- If you just want some mindless violence with a somewhat decent plot and some cool action scenes and characters, then give this a try, its not that bad. If your one of those people that can't stand violence and nudity and place all the importance on story and char development, this is not for you.

4/10 story
